Secondary Art Teacher
Kings’ School Al Barsha is seeking an outstanding Art teacher to join our excellent Visual Arts department. As a relatively young department, our expectation is that the successful candidate will develop and grow with the department to help it to become a leading area of school life.
The department is superbly resourced, with professional facilities for printmaking, photography, ceramics and textiles, and purpose built classrooms to encourage and display students’ creativity. As such, this position represents a superb opportunity for an aspiring, imaginative and inspirational teacher to join a creative and innovative environment. You will be a part of and be supported by a successful and highly creative faculty with exacting standards.
When you join the Kings’ family, you will become part of a strategically connected group of schools, one of which is the only school in Dubai to be rated outstanding 10 years running. Working in Dubai is a fast-paced and rewarding experience, however, it is a demanding and rigorous working environment which requires committed and motivated professionals. As such, we seek teachers who understand that their role extends far beyond the classroom.
As part of our drive for excellence, Kings’ has committed to the John Hattie Visible Learning programme and is the only school in the Middle East working directly with the Visible Learning group. This focuses on how to best enhance student achievement, linking closely to our mission statement of “The best by every child.” All teachers receive excellent and highly desirable professional development which informs our approach as a professional body.

- Hold Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) or equivalent, with a minimum of 3 years experience, though new teachers or NQTs who are aspiring to be outstanding will be considered

- A commitment to the wellbeing and pastoral care of all students within their care
